Execute filter and email from scheduled task

Hi all,

I'm trying to write a scheduled task in JIRA, along the lines of http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2011/05/scheduled-tasks-in-jira.html

My aim is to execute a filter and then email the assignee/reporter/group member for each issue.

I've looked at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/190042/executing-a-filter-within-a-jira-plugin and https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/15723/how-to-send-email-from-plugin, which should give me the basics I need.

My question is: where do I (or can I) download the jars required to use the classes (MailQueueItem , JqlClauseBuilder , ComponentAccessor, etc).

Thanks

You will have to add the following dependencies in the pom.xml

<dependency>
      <groupId>com.atlassian.jira</groupId>
      <artifactId>jira-api</artifactId>
      <version>${jira.version}</version>
      <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>
<dependency>
      <groupId>com.atlassian.jira</groupId>
      <artifactId>jira-core</artifactId>
      <version>${jira.version}</version>
      <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>

jira-core has classes which might change in minor versions but MailQueueItem comes from that if I remember correctly.

Unless this is a programming practice for you (in which case good luck, Jobin already gave the correct answer!), you can save some efforts by installing the Automation Plugin with the PDF Automation Plugin to your JIRA.

The Automation Plugin allows you to set up a CRON based trigger that executes an action according to the specified schedule, whereas the PDF Automation Plugin provides a Send PDF action that executes a saved filter, generates a PDF document from the result, attached that to an email and sends the email to the email addresses you specify.
